My journey begun just 3 weeks ago. I did it before so I know I can do it again. Here's to the new and better me.

May this be the turning point in your life. Each day opens like a door letting us see the wonders of life. It is up to you to embrace all that is given. Do not regret the wasted moments of the past embrace the future and move forward.

A healthy lifestyle is a process - more of a journey than a destination. SP with all its features and tools can help you along the way and with the support of its members, well, it's a recipe for success!!

The best way I found to get going was to use the "Getting Started Guide" which you can find at the top of your Start Page under the “How to Use the Site” tab. It will take you step-by-step in getting you up and running and in no time at all you'll be feeling right at home!!

Don't expect to change everything overnight. It takes small steps to get from where you are to where you want to be. Just think about The Tortoise and The Hare. You can win the race if you stay focused and take slow, steady steps to get there.

Surveys have shown that participants in Message Boards lost more weight and stayed with their program longer than non-participants so come by as often as you can. Here at SP you'll find all kinds of motivation and support from people who have similar goals as you do. We are all taking this journey together and we truly want to see each other succeed!!

Wishing you the very best as you work towards your goals!!!
